How to Build Real-Time Location Intelligence Apps

By Hari Subhash | March 3, 2023

Real-time location intelligence is the the art of gathering, analyzing and acting on location-based data as events unfold. It’s valuable for a range of applications such as fleet management, smart cities, detecting threats in our airspace, smart agriculture, proximity marketing, telco network optimization, supply chain management and more. Over the past few years, building real-time…

Unlock Opportunities with Continuously Updated Materialized Views

By Hari Subhash | January 4, 2023

Materialized views are a feature available with many databases to store the results of a frequently executed query so that the same view can be accessed repeatedly without forcing the database to re-execute the query each time. This allows for faster access to the data, as the results of the query do not need to…

Dealing with Extreme Cardinality Joins

By Chad Meley | December 21, 2022

High cardinality data can be more difficult to efficiently analyze because many unique elements increase the computational cost for analysis, and make it more challenging to identify useful insights from the data. Cardinality refers to the number of unique elements in a set. For instance, low cardinality data sets include the names of a few…

Do you need a streaming database?

By Chad Meley | December 8, 2022

Streaming databases are close cousins to time-series databases (think TimescaleDB) or log databases (think Splunk). All are designed to track a series of events and enable queries that can search and produce statistical profiles of blocks of time in near real-time. Streaming databases can ingest data streams and enable querying of the data across larger…

What to look for in a database for spatio-temporal analysis?

By Chad Meley | December 7, 2022

As sensor data, log data and streaming data continues to grow, we are seeing a significant increase in demand for tools that can do spatial and time-series analytics. The cost of sensors and devices capable of broadcasting their longitude and latitude as they move through time and space is falling rapidly with commensurate proliferation. By…
